Before the match, Matt Taven accompanies his stablemates to the ring and talks about Lethal disrespected him. He calls himself the world champion and calls Lethal out to the ring. The ROH World Champion comes to the ring, and the expected main event is getting an early start.

ROH World Championship: Jay Lethal (c) vs. Matt Taven

The two rivals exchange strikes and knife edge chops. Taven and Lethal exchange momentum but the challenger grounds the champion with a chinlock-body scissors combination before shifting into chinlock that’s almost like a Camel Clutch. Lethal gets out of it and hits a dragon screw leg whip. Taven counters a back springboard elbow with a heel kick.  Lethal hits two backbreakers and targets Taven’s spine with a series of knees. The referee misses a potential pinfall when Lethal’s shoulders hit the mat during an inverted Texas Cloverleaf. Lethal hits a suicide dive and follows it up with three more. Later, Lethal dodges a frog splash and hits a Lethal Combination. Marseglia and O’Ryan attack Jay Lethal and brutalize Jonathan Gresham but they’re chased off by Haskins and Williams. Lethal hits an elbow drop off the top and locks in the Figure Four leglock. Taven suplexes Lethal through a table at ringside and later dodges an elbow drop, which causes Lethal to nearly break a ladder upon impact. After a Lethal Injection and kickout, the refereee declares the match a draw because it passed the sixty minute time limit.

Winner: Draw (Lethal retains)

Scurll shows up, takes the title and leaves. Taven throws a streamer at Lethal and leaves, too.
